It took someone like you

It took someone like you to bring out the someone in me.

It took someone like you to help me open my eyes to see,

That the only experience in life more beautiful even than life

Was the joy of motherhood and not the joy of being a wife.


When you came into my life mewling your way into my heart;

You fisted your hand on my finger and stole me from the start.

I gazed upon your face all cherubic pink and scrunched red

And I knew that between us no words needed to be said.


Know this my child, you are a piece of my being, my essence.

And, nothing in this world will ever compare of ever lessen.

The magnitude of love that I hold in my heart just for you,

Which grows and burgeons every day, building up anew.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (, by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
